This episode of 9-1-1: Lone Star started off with so much promise. The Ryders were having fun hanging out with Tommy and Trevor, but things quickly got more complicated in “A House Divided” as Tommy and Judd get into a disagreement at work. It was a complicated situation, and we think both Tommy and Judd had valid points. But their disagreement affected everyone at the house which made for a not-so-fun work environment. The Strands also had their own family problems this week so basically this episode pulled at all of our heartstrings.
Judd was acting captain of the 126 this week while Owen was away. During a call, he issues an order for everyone to evacuate. It was a dangerous situation and Judd didn’t want to lose anyone in his house. Tommy didn’t leave because she was trying to save a life. We understand both sides: Tommy is a paramedic. Her job is to literally save a life. But as the acting captain, Judd’s job is to protect the people in his house. The reason he issued that order was to make sure everyone was safe. We don’t think he was in the wrong in issuing that order.
However, going to HR probably did probably take it too far. We get that he did it for the right reasons (at least we hope that’s why he did it), but it just made the whole thing worse. It made everyone in the house take sides. The 126 doesn’t need to be fighting each other: they are all part of the same house and are on the same team! It also put Grace at odds with Trevor and Tommy. She tried so hard to be neutral and not take sides, but as much as she loves Tommy, Judd is her husband. And she didn’t not appreciate how Trevor said Tommy was a hero, but Judd was petty.
As bad as this feud was, and it looked like it was going to last until at least Owen came back to town, what happened at the end of the episode was even worse. Wyatt was hit by a car, and we’re not sure what the outcome is going to be. Is he even going to live? And if he does live, will he be able to walk again? This is just absolutely devastating, and we’re so mad that the writers did this. Judd will never be the same if his son doesn’t make it. And we just can’t handle that.
Owen spent time with his brother this week in “A House Divided” and things with Robert aren’t looking good. As we recently learned, Robert has Huntington’s Disease, and his symptoms are quickly progressing. Robert also tells Owen that he wants to come stay with him so that Owen can help him end his life. Honestly, we were shocked. He just found out he has Huntington’s Disease. We understand that he doesn’t want his family to suffer with his disease, but shouldn’t he tell his family first before he makes these decisions? Will Owen go along with it and help end Robert’s life?
The only good thing that happened in this week’s episode was finding out Owen doesn’t have the gene for Huntington’s Disease which means TK doesn’t have it either. What a relief. And this news lead to very sweet and romantic moment between TK and Carlos. We absolutely love these two together, and we’re so looking forward to them being married. And we’re glad they can start their marriage with knowing they don’t have to worry about TK’s health.
Next week is the season finale. We’re both excited and scared to see what will happen.
